Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing family genealogical research for 30+ years. I love to visit old cemeteries and find ancestral grave stones. I hope the memorials I create and pictures I upload will help others do the same.

A poem to consider:

by Anonymous

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not
Or don't you really know?

Some strange discoveries are made
In climbing family trees,
And some of them you know, do not
Particularly please.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps
You wouldn't care to know.

But here's another question
Which requires a different view,
When you should meet your ancestors
Will they be proud of you?

The Auburn Birth Register lists his birth as March 12, 1865, not the 22. A typo perhaps?

Thank You Bob
Thank you for taking the grave pics of Victor, Stella and Floyd Conrad. I really appreciate you posting the plot locs on the pictures. I posted them on their Memorials. I only found Memorials for Victor and Floyd. Did you happen to find a Memorial for Stella? Or know how to create one?
Thanks for your assistance.

Frank P Mero # 65458422
Dominique, Twice, I have asked the cemetery office for the burial location of Frank Mero. Both times they have told me they have no record of his burial in Hope Cemetery.

The originator of this Find A Grave page works from published obituaries, which are not always correct. Until we know the correct cemetery where he is buried, regrettably, I will be unable to fulfill your request.


Thanks Bob for your research ... it's true to say sometimes Obits are not correct ... and sometimes the grave marker itself are false ... Anyway I hope to find more info about this hero one day .

Thanks for your help and your time.

Bob: Many thanks for the headstone and family plot photos. You have uncovered for me another of Mary's siblings Eliza being on the same stone. Fantastic. She died 4 Dec 1840 age 7 per some research. The circle is becoming more complete. I sent an E-mail also. The captions on the photos helped greatly. Again many thanks. Bill Preston

RE: Frank Sparrell
Bob, It was so long ago that I called a cemetery office about Frank's wife and they are the people that told me about a fire but has been awhile and can't recall all the details.
